action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white house downplays any friction between the two leaders and brushes aside criticism that there was no face-to-face meeting. >> the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than with any leader since he took office. and that is reflective of the importance of and the closeness of the relationship between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the whi
vegas. then at the annual u.n. meeting where rogue nations are calling for a new world order, obama snubbed key allies and skipped meetings with world leaders so he could be on tv. >> so how much of the campaign is this going to be? the romney campaign is debating how forcefully to engage the libya issue. some are advising it's good to use as a stand-in for overall failures of the president. romney tries to do that in a wall street op-ed writing disturbing developments are sweeping across the greater middle east, these developments are not, as president obama says, mere bumps in the road. they are major issues that put our security at risk. yet amid this upheaval, our country seems to be at the mercy. >> the response was slow, it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of bagger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling lit literally before our eyes an on tvs.
to have the american president to the u.n., we do not agree with you. and i will give you two examples. we are all -- and i'm going to deal with the issue of iran. it will be the first question. before iran, let's speak iraq. in the early '80s, the prime minister decided to attack the nuclear reactor in iraq. it wasn't popular here in the u.s., but we did it. and we we were condemned by the u.s., by the state department, we were condemned by the u.n., but years later people exearkted that the -- appreciated that the, grave decision that prime minister begin took in 198 is 1 was for the benefit of the american people. because when you, the american army, invaded iraq, you were able do into the region without taking the risk that iran was nuclear. i'm sure there are some young jewish people in the audience, and for us, i don't mean -- yom kippur is the holiest day of the year. 1973 during the yom kippur, that's something i found out even though i thought i knew everything before i wrote the book, but while doing the research, i learned myself a lot, and i found out that in 1973 when the egyp
especially at places like the u.n., nothing of substance gets done. i actually prefer that our president is on the phone with prime minister netanyahu today. he was on the phone for an hour last week. he has been on the phone with other leaders from the middle east constantly throughout all of the chaos that is happening. that is much more important from a substantive standpoint than from any sort of perception standpoint of who he met or who he didn't meet, and we also saw the prime minister walk back his criticism. >> we got to leave it there. anna, maria, good to see you both. >> thanks so much. >> it would be great if he were meeting with the ladies of "the view" instead of meeting with netanyahu. >> he -- >> that's my personal preference. >> to meet with five powerful women. hey, you know, that may sway some votes. >> we have to take a quick break. [ voice of dennis ] ...safe driving bonus check? every six months without an accident, allstate sends a check. ok. [ voice of dennis ] silence. are you in good hands? [ voice of dennis ] silence. you see us, at the start of the day. on th
ready for wednesday's rumble. >> well, the president's the president. he was at the u.n. giving two major speeches. he's been dealing with all sorts of international business, domestic business. he is at the white house a lot of the time preparing and i can tell you that his -- they have had to cancel times when he might or might not have been able to do preparation. it's my understanding mitt romney spent four or five days secluded somewhere. had five debates in 24 hours or 48 hours. and has senator portman with him every day on the airplane practicing. i'm here. i'm not traveling with the president or doing any of this. >> more expectations setting from senator kerrly and also making the point that being the job of president gets in the way of debate prep and leaving town and leaving washington helps for the president and doesn't hurt, wolf, picked a battleground state, nevada, to do the debate prep and going to other states. >> not far from denver, either. >> an easy jump over. also learning new details about how mitt romney's preparing for his first face to face contest with the
the "friends of syria" group along the sidelines of the u.n. general assembly meeting. two of syria's key allies, russia and china, were not included in the talks. clinton said the u.s. was offering the opposition an additional $45 million in non- lethal and humanitarian aid. she also used the opportunity to single out iran for aiding forces loyal to president bashar al-assad. 's most important lifeline is iran. last week a senior iranian official publicly acknowledged that members of the iranian revolutionary guard corp. are operating inside syria. there is no longer any doubt that tehran will do whatever it takes to protect its proxy and crony in damascus. >> sreenivasan: in washington, defense secretary leon panetta confirmed the u.s. has intelligence that shows the syrian regime has moved some of its chemical weapons to better secure them. he also said the major stockpiles at main sites are believed to be secure. in august, president obama threatened u.s. action if syria moves or uses its chemical weapons. meanwhile, in syria, the battle for control of the northern city of aleppo inte
, the rebels control the border post which makes them a target. at the u.n. security council, the paralysis caused by the desire of france, britain and america, to remove the regime in russia and china cost support of it means a struggle to release a statement. >> this is a great concern. turkey is a core ally of the united states and this sort of cross border military activity is very destabilizing and must be stopped. >> syria takes seriously the vote in turkey and the vote authorizing military action. >> in cases of border incidents, that happened between any two neighboring countries, states and governments should act wisely, rationally and responsibly. >> but on syrian state tv, the incident with turkey was not mentioned. it called for a combination of rebel attacks. the russian foreign minister who says he does not want sutton regime change is watching president." assad tossed back, vital for the regime's survival. >> the conflict in syria took on a cross border damaged a long time ago. pick it is being pulled from the outside. >> all syria's neighbors are being drawn into the conflic
, not surprisingly, dismissed those commence -- comments as outrageous and unrealistic. >> shepard: the u.n. secretary general addressed those weapons today. >> yeah. obviously a lot of concern raised last week by leon panetta when he said there is some evidence that some of those chemical weapons stockpiles have been moved. as a result, perhaps, of that information, the u.n. secretary general gave a stark warning today to president assad of syria. listen. >> i once again emphasize the fundamental responsibility of the syrian government to ensure the safety and security of any such stockpiles. the use of such would be outrageous crime with dire consequences. >> although given the lack of action from the u.n. on anything to do with syria, warnings of dire consequences from the secretary general are likely to be taken with a healthy dose of a pinch of salt by the syrians, shep? >> shepard: jonathan, before we wrap things up at the united nations, i had no idea that the united states was ready to start a war with north korea to take over all of asia. who knew? >> those were the claims made tod
here. >> after dropping this on the u.n. yesterday, he talks to obama and romney today. what israel's line in the sand would mean for all of us. plus, have you seen chelsea lately? >> nobody knows what the hell they're getting into when they're running for president. >> one of my favorites guests is back. >> i'm single, yes. >> if men are watching this -- >> yeah, i'm available. you know, just call me maybe. >> funny, feisty as ever, with a new look for her talk show. this is "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. the big story, the great debate. in just five days the event that could change the race for the white house permanently. the clock is ticking and the candidates know it. they meet face-to-face on wednesday. this weekend, both will be locked behind closed doors in practice sparring sessions. romney has listed senator rob portman to prep him while obama is working with senator john kerry. latest polls covered with that 47% remark hurting romney. in the battleground state of pennsylvania today. >> -- make sure america leads in our homes, in our economy and in our military.
the globe. over the past week, peopling at the u.n. publicly weighed in the debate about what to do about the syrian conflict. today it was syria's turn to respond. president assad was unsurprisingly absent from the podium. instead, the talking was left to the country's foreign minister. walid muallem accused those spork terrorism in his country and prostriding arms to his army. he said calling president assad to step down would be serious to the affairs. he met with the secretary general to show compassion to their own people. but just how far is all the rhetoric got us? i'm joined here in the studio by steve from the u.s. institute of peace. steve, thank you very much indeed for coming in. listening to muallem's speech, what sort of insight does it give us into the way the syrian regime is thinking right now? >> well, the foreign minister repeated almost verbatim what they called this uprising from the very beginning. they depicted it as driven by foreign elements, as a conspiracy against the syrian people, against the syrian nation, and it's a way of denying any legitimacy to the claim
to protect the great barrier reef. the u.n. says that unless more is done, the reef risks losing its world heritage list davis. this would turn into a political and ecological disaster. it has just been stand by google. are these pictures about to go from being an up-to-date window on the "masterpiece to a collection for an archive? >> a thrilling sport tradition or a crow and antiquated form of entertainment? in mexico, the debate is raging on whether to ban bullfighting. >> it is still one of the most controversial past times in the americas. bullfighting has been practiced in mexico since the time of the conquistadores, but its days might now be numbered. last year, a proposed ban in the mexican capital only felt at the final hurdle. this time around, the activists are convinced that the legislation will pass. following a partial ban in countries like peru and ecuador, this, the largest bullring in the world in mexico as potential the next site to be closed down. that is something that these fans and the workers here are desperate to avoid. this has been in the hernandez family for five
. the u.n. -- the united states classifies hamas as a terrorist organization. now, the group which controls gaza has been accused of torture, police brutality, and arbitrary arrest. the criminal justice system reeks of injustice according to human-rights watch. there has been isolated cases of abuse. they deny that it is systematic. our correspondent reports >> security forces in action. soon after they came to power in late 2007. human-rights watched says that police brutality remains a problem not only in the streets but inside the prisons. >> in this report we found that the authorities are arbitrarily detain people, to nine people access to the lawyers, and torturing people. in the worst cases are executing people based on a concession that was given under torture. we spoke to one young vocal opponent has been arbitrarily arrested dozens of times over the last five years. >> this continued for several days. they burned my foot with a cigarette lighter. another help to me down and they burned me again. >> in the prisons, this is not uncommon according to the report. unusually, h
ahmadinejad has come to the u.n. general assembly and every time he's caused controversy, making accusations. veiled threats. this year was different. it was mostly platitudes about world peace but he had plenty of sharp comments in a series of interviews. his conversation with me was his final one. perhaps his final one on the world stage. you see, iran's election law says he can't run again and elections are set for 2013. so i asked him about israeli strikes and obama's warnings. you've indicated that you think that the israeli prime minister's threats toward iran are ones you don't take very seriously, but i was wondering how seriously you take the rhetoric of the president of the united states. president obama said at the united nations that he was determined to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. do you regard that as a bluff? >> translator: you set forth two or three questions here. i have never used the word "bluff." when we say we do not take it seriously, we mean that it impacts -- it does not impact our policies in the slightest. iran is a vast country, is a great country.
, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
namic. that is on the agenda at the u.n. what do we expect there? >> reporter: that's right. there will be a meeting today sort of on the sidelines of the general assembly. it will be hosted by secretary of state hillary clinton. it is a meeting of the friends of syria. it will be attended by ministers of some 20 countries. the purpose of this meeting essentially to show support for the syrian opposition and to address the humanitarian concerns. the risch shan foreign minister is going to speak today. likely he will talk about syria. the russian foreign minister said yesterday russia is not going to offer asylum to the syrian president, bashar assad if that is sought. he also said russia is not pressuring assad to step down. martha, one statistic that is very disturbing. since monday, since the start of the general assembly this week, 489 people have been killed in syria because of that ongoing conflict. today we'll hear russia address it but unlikely we'll see any resolution anytime soon. martha: tragic and press, pressing event and on going store. david lee, thank you very
skeptically after abbas' speech at the u.n. yesterday which was just terrible, just attack after attack after attack, and no opportunity to really reconcile, but he speaks differently to the world audience, to the u.n. and to folks like me. >> to be fair, i watched netanyahu's speech. he barely mentioned the palestinian peace process. he gave it piecemeal. he was much more focused on ahmadinejad and iran. >> look, the palestinians do not pose an existential threat to israel. i think they should resolve this issue in a two-state solution. iran, one bomb could destroy israel as one of the heads of iran recently said. if one bomb were dropped on israel it would destroy israel forever. israel might retaliate and kill 10 or 20 million muslims but there are 110 million of them. so israel has to put the iranian situation first. that's correct. i think they are actually related in some way. i do think that if the israelis do make it a good peace offer and if they can resolve this with their own security intact, it will help create an international consensus against iran. >> let me bring in dan senor.
